Re: Is there any way to read the configuration that was pushed to a Soarer's Converter?

Indeed you can. Along with the soarer's firmware download, you should also have some utilities that came with the firmware. https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=17458.0 Here's a description of the tools from the documentation: Tool Description scas - Assembles one or more config text files to a conf...

Re: Where do you guys find your vintage keyboards?

Yeah I've gotten that line myself a few times. I work in IT so I can understand the concern.

Re: Where do you guys find your vintage keyboards?

A lot of people just call around to electronics recycling centers to see if they can come pick through boards. But I've heard that fewer and fewer of these places are even accepting keyboards any longer (something about China, plastic, and teriffs I think). Whatever the reason, it's a bit sad to thi...

Re: Computer Reset Conundrum

Eh, I may have philosophical differences (which is kind of sad because we're talking about e-waste aka literally garbage).

But that being said, I don't think any actual stealing happened. At least based off of the info available.

All I'm saying is, I've made two valid observations and (surprise) you've quickly excused them away (like everything else).

You can only program from the KitProg end **once** - KitProg will fail to acquire port after programming because programming pins are reused as GPIOs.

Re: [Done] CommonSense: matrix LCR meter with a HID interface

I should have checked better. Didn't realize you had the full thing pinned out.

I know that 3.2 is skipped. Try disconnecting that maybe? I'm not sure what the pin is used for but it's skipped in the documentation. https://github.com/dmaone/CommonSense
